Back and neck discomfort of any kind can significantly limit your daily activities and make your life miserable.
Symptoms of back pain can range from moderate to severe and debilitating. Back pain can limit your range of motion and negatively impact your ability to do daily tasks and enjoy life. If you’re experiencing chronic discomfort, see your doctor right away.
The cervical vertebrae in your neck are the source of neck pain. The neck is particularly vulnerable to injury due to its exposed position and wide range of motion.
Back and neck pain can be excruciating. Is this a condition that comes on quickly and strongly? Long-term pain might linger for several weeks to years. The pain might either be constant or sporadic.
What causes back and neck pain?
Even with today’s technology, pinpointing the exact source of back and neck pain remains a challenge. All or some of the following may be to blame for back and neck pain:
- Incorrect use, such as repetitive or heavy lifting, overuse, or excessive activity
- Bruises, wounds, or sprains
- Stress on the muscles and ligaments that support your spine or the effects of aging can lead to vertebral degeneration.
- Tumors and bone spurs are examples of malignant development.
- Increased weight on your spine and disc pressure caused by obesity.
- A lack of muscle mass
- Tension in the muscles
- Strain vs. strain
- Torn ligaments and muscles
- Arthritis and other debilitating joint conditions
- Pinched nerve and protruding or ruptured (slipped) disk
- Compression fractures with osteoporosis
- Your vertebrae and bones may have congenital abnormalities that were present at birth.
- Aortic aneurysm, for example, is a type of abdominal ailment.

What is the treatment for back and neck pain?
To treat these types of back pain, many doctors will recommend surgery or strong medication.
